Wednesday, December 16, 2020
Erlanger Health System announced Monday that LIFE FORCE, the health system’s critical care air medical program, has achieved re-accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems.
“Earning and maintaining this accreditation for the past nine years displays the dedication of our employees and their passion for providing the highest level of critical care to the communities we serve,” said Robbie Tester, LIFE FORCE senior director. “I am incredibly proud of our team for achieving CAMTS accreditation yet again and providing such an admired level of care to our patients.”
CAMTS is a collective of nonprofit organizations dedicated to improving the quality and safety of medical transport services.
The commission offers a voluntary program for evaluation of compliance with standards demonstrating the ability to deliver service of a specific quality. LIFE FORCE is committed to the standards set forth by CAMTS and continues to participate in the process, officials said.
Prior to the site survey, LIFE FORCE submitted information that included policies and procedures, meeting minutes, shift schedules, quality metric reports and education records. The program was reviewed on program management and corporate ethics, quality management, patient care, staff onboarding, continuing education, medical direction, communication standards, aviation standards and safety, and pilot and aviation mechanic standards and safety.
